, ,

Gaz polishing off the final overhangA weeks climbing in Spain on the Costa Blanca. We climbed at Calpe, enjoying the main west face Peñón de Ifach on the route Diedro UBSA. 10 pitches of pure exposure. The aim was to get to the top before the sun hit us. So we started the route before dawn and just got to the last pitch before the sun hit us! A mixture of bolts and trad and a totally varied route, corners, caves, abs cracks and slabs just to mention a few! Beautiful view down to the coastline
